Redshirt freshman quarterback Spencer Rattler and redshirt junior H-back Jeremiah Hall celebrate after the Sooners score a touchdown during the Sooners' season opener against Missouri State on Sept. 12, 2020. 

The Sooners released their official nonconference schedule for the 2021 season on Monday.

Oklahoma will open its season at Tulane on Sept. 4 in New Orleans for just the second-ever meeting between the Sooners and Green Wave. OU won the first matchup, 56-14, on Sept. 16, 2017. Afterwards, Oklahoma welcomes Western Carolina to Norman on Sept. 11 for the Sooners' first home game of the season.

OU ends its nonconference slate against former Big 12 foe Nebraska on Sept. 18 in Norman. Since moving to the Big Ten in 2011, the Cornhuskers last played the Sooners in the 2010 Big 12 Championship game, where Oklahoma won 23-20. Overall, Oklahoma holds a 45-38-3 series advantage over Nebraska.

The Sooners' full 2021 Big 12 schedule has yet to be released.
